“**Carlos has been awesome!**”

Dear Sir / Madam,

I have 15 years of professional experience as an educator. I hold a bachelor's degree in Education with emphasis in Mathematics and Physics education. I have had the opportunity to serve as a teacher at different schools as well as different grade levels.

Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to

We could not be more pleased with Carlos. He has done a fantastic job and most importantly our son's Geometry grade has improved greatly!

I really appreciate how thorough and detail oriented Mr. S is. He patiently worked with my son to assess his comprehension level and provided a framework to build on. He exceeded my expectations. I will update my review as we progress forward.

My son has a much better grasp on math this year with Carlos as his tutor. Last year he was struggling to keep a C. So far this year he has maintained an A! Carlos stays in contact with my sons Algebra teacher to stay on top of areas of need.

Carlos worked with me to come up with a great plan for becoming more proficient in the Spanish language and I look forward to working with him more. Great communicator before, during, and after the lesson...HIGHLY recommend!

Carlos has been great for my son. My son struggled in math all the way through school, Carlos was able to help my son understand not only the basics but is now helping him with algebraic equations and word problems that seemed to always stump him.

I am thankful Carlos took the time to understand my sons way of learning and then was able to tailor his teaching skills to match how my son learned. It was like a light bulb for my son.

With Carlos help I know my son will finally get his diploma.

Carlos was a great tutor for the short time I needed him. He helped me prepare for the math portion of my CASA test, which I passed! He was patient and went out of his way to find resources to help me in areas I'm weak. He gave me good strategies to help me pass my test. I highly recommend him for any help you may need. He's worth the time and money!

Carlos got right to the point and worked diligently with my son. We will definitely work with Carlos again!

Carlos has been very good tutoring my son with his geometry. He is now at a passing grade and would not be if it had not been for Carlos. He was able to explain and spend the time needed so my son understood what he needed to do to do well on his tests and get his homework done. I would highly recommend Carlos.

Kids have definitely improved their Spanish grades since Carlos has been tutoring them. It's good to have a native Spanish speaker teach the kids and it's better if he/she knows how to teach and Carlos fits both bills.

Carlos has been an excellent guide and teacher to my son. The best thing he says about Carlos is, "Well, if he would be my teacher I would have to spend less time at school. What he explains to me in 5 minutes. My school teacher cannot in 2 days...you do the math!!" Best wishes!

Carlos came for his first Spanish tutoring session with our son who is in ninth grade. Carlos did a very good job; he was professional (didn't waste any time getting down to work), connected well with our son, asked questions to get a feel for where our son is, and covered a lot of work in just an hour. He even went over our son's test study guide with him and helped him find some mistakes so that he doesn't study misinformation. We were very pleased and look forward to another session with Carlos!

Carlos is an excellent tutor. My son has nothing but good things to say about Carlos' abilities as a tutor. He makes the lessons easy to understand, he is patient, and he knows how to explain material so the student can understand the mechanics. I cannot say enough about Carlos working with us to accommodate my son's tutoring needs. I highly recommend Carlos.

My son has had a couple of tutors to help him with his pre-algebra, and feels very comfortable with Carlos and how he explains before going on to the next problem. Carlos has a pleasant personality and is clear with his approach. My son has been with Carlos a few weeks now, once a week, and has shown improvement already.

He has always been on time, contacts me to confirm appointments, very thorough at walking through problems step by step with my daughter. His feedback is very detailed. He is very professional. He is to the point and gets started promptly. I will use him again next semester if my daughter is struggling in Algebra 2. My daughter was nervous at first to have a male tutor but she told me he is very patient with her and helps to explain material well.

I have had 3 great tutoring sessions with Carlos. He knows his subject area very well and is very patient. He has greatly helped me with my Spanish and I plan to continue to work with him weekly. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a great tutor!

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

With 15 years of teaching and tutoring experience plus all math courses taken at the college level, most of which were beyond the scope of the mathematics covered on the ACT math, allow me to confidently say that I am qualified and prepared to provide students with the support they need to prepare for the math section on the ACT test.

Also, I have experience teaching/tutoring students with learning disabilities, which has allowed me to develop teaching strategies in order to meet their needs.

Through these years of teaching/tutoring experience, I have also developed knowledge of the structure of the test, mathematics content, as well as the required logical reasoning and thinking skills that students need to develop in order to set the correct strategies and problem-solve in a timely manner.

For the past 3 and a half years I have been dedicated to teaching this subject and I have gathered experience and teaching/tutoring strategies in how to help students overcome the obstacles they face when trying to master Algebra I concepts.

My tutoring approach consists of evaluating content to be learned, evaluating timeframe available before final test and/or end of the class, as well as constant assessments to check for understanding.

I use a gradual release approach when tutoring in which I demonstrate first when necessary, then my student and I interact to set up and carry out strategies to solve problems. Finally I encourage my student to do some independent work to build confidence. This cycle does not end until my student and I go over the results of independent work and then determine whether material has been mastered or not.

The key to being a successful Algebra 2 tutor relies on a profound understanding and ability to teach and/or tutor Algebra 1, as well as the mathematics levels above Algebra 2 (Trigonometry, pre-calculus, etc.). My high school mathematics teaching experience (Algebra 2 included) as well as my degree in Mathematics and Physics Education allows me to assist students by explaining the subject matter from different angles so the student can better understand it and be able to apply it.

I also know and am able to teach mathematics above the Algebra 2 level, which means that I am fully aware of the kind of math that I will be preparing the Algebra 2 student for. This knowledge and skill allows me to prioritize and make emphasis in areas that I know will be needed in a trigonometry, statistical analysis and/or a pre-calculus class.

I am also certified by the Indiana State Department of Education to teach these high school level mathematics classes/courses.

Having taught mathematics at the high school and middle school for 15 years, I have developed a deep understanding of the knowledge and skills students must develop at the elementary level in order to build strong computational skills, logical reasoning and strategy setting for problem solving.

As part of my experience as an educator, I have also been involved in the creation of manipulatives and mathematics teaching materials for elementary teachers. Testing these materials in classrooms with teachers and students was also part of this work assignment.

Geometry is one of my favorite subjects to teach/tutor. I enjoy helping students develop abstract thinking and logical reasoning through geometry problems. I also provide students with tools and/or strategies for them to use to help with visualization, specially when handling three dimensional figures.

I also offer the use of concrete manipulatives to help with visualization.

I have demonstrated full understanding of geometry through successful completion of college classes as well as success in required examinations for acquiring my Indiana teaching license. These are the Praxis I and II (specialty area).

I have two and a half years of classroom experience in high schools which has allowed me to gather information on what students struggle the most, and how to help them overcome these obstacles.

Prealgebra is one subject covered in my current valid Indiana teaching license. I have demonstrated knowledge and complete understanding of the principles of algebra through coursework for my bachelor's degree as well as testing required from the state of Indiana to obtain my teaching license. These tests are Praxis I and II (specialty area).

I have 15 years of professional experience in mathematics education. More specifically, I have taught Prealgebra and Algebra at Spratley Middle School (2 years) in Virginia USA, and at Christel House Academy (2.5 years) in Indiana.

Back in 2002, I worked as an assistant to mathematics education university professors in creating teaching materials for arithmetic, prealgebra and algebra. Classroom teachers (recipients) were provided materials as well as training on how to use them. My job consisted on creating materials, assist professors in preparing and conducting workshops and preparing logistics prior to workshops.

This was done overseas at the Universidad Catolica Andres Bello located in Caracas, Venezuela.

A solid foundation of algebra, geometry and trigonometry is required in order to master precalculus. During my high school years as a student, I had the opportunity the build this foundation mentioned above as I also was exposed precalculus math content. Later on, while in college, this foundation served me well in order to be able to understand and master higher level or college level mathematics, that is (mathematical analysis, analytical geometry, calculus, statistics), as well as physical science courses in which one must apply all these concepts of math studied in the subjects mentioned above.

After obtaining a bachelor's degree in mathematics and physical science education I have been fortunate enough to be able to help many students with these mathematics subjects. My teaching and/or tutoring experience has reached 17 years in which I have encountered many challenges and successes as well as learning experiences as to how students learn best and how to be aware and mindful of individual learning styles.

Preparing for the Math SAT test requires specific knowledge not only of the mathematics content involved but also on the type of questions that will be asked.

I am very familiar with the structure of the math sections of the test as well as the type of questions in it. This allows me to set up the right strategies to attack questions and/or math problems from a time-efficiency stand point.

I am fully knowledgeable and confident that I can successfully tutor all the mathematics areas of the SAT test (Pre-algebra, Algebra I, Special math problems, Geometry, and Algebra 2).

I have classroom experience teaching these subjects in traditional high school and middle school settings as well as public charter schools. I am also licensed in the state of Indiana to teach all the subjects mentioned above.

As a native Spanish speaker, my educational background consists of elementary, middle, high school and university (bachelor's degree) fully in Spanish. I obtained my bachelor's degree in Education for Universidad Catolica Andres Bello, located in the city of Caracas, Venezuela.

On the other hand, I have teaching experience in both countries Venezuela and the USA. I have a total of 15 years of teaching experience. Nine years teaching in Venezuela fully in Spanish and 6 years of teaching in the USA.

As a native Spanish speaker and someone who learned and is able to fluently speak, read and write in English as a second language, I am aware and have experienced myself the difficulties of learning a second language.

I now, respectfully, offer all my experience and knowledge to my prospective Spanish students.

Trigonometry is one of my favorite math content to teach and/or tutor. During my first exposure to trigonometry, as a high school student, I realized quickly that not only I was able to learn and apply it relatively quickly but also enjoyed helping others to learn too. Later on during my college years, I went more in depth into this subject and its applications as it relates to mathematical analysis, analytical geometry and calculus (college level mathematics). I hold a bachelor's degree in teaching mathematics and physical science from the Universidad Catolica Andres Bello, located in Caracas, Venezuela (South America) and have 17 years of teaching and tutoring experience in this field. I have taught in Venezuelan schools as well as schools in the U.S. , that is public schools as well as public charter schools.
